It's Franny's eighth birthday and she's getting her first pet - a cockatiel called Mr Ping Pong. She's always wanted someone to love, and more importantly, someone to love her back.
But when Mr. Ping Pong starts loving their daughter the wrong way, Joan and Richard are thrown into an absurdist parenting nightmare, and must try to remove the deviant bird while conserving what's left of Franny's innocence.
After all, these are her formative years.
Love Bird is a mixture of absurd comedy and twisted kitchen-sink drama, exploring society's fraught relationship with female sexual development.
